Efficient and compact medical power supplies for space constrained applications

18-08-2021 | CUI Inc | Power

CUI Inc has added 12 new models to its VMS-C and VMS-C-CNF range of internal medical AC/DC power supplies. Considerably increasing the offering, these new, higher power models are chassis mount units provided in open frame or metal case variations that are ideal for employment in medical and home healthcare applications, such as ultrasound machines and medical beds.

Providing a universal input voltage up to 264VAC and output voltages of 12, 15, 24, 27, 36, and 48V, these power supplies are adjustable utilising an onboard trim pot. Offering safety and durability, the units can function in a wide operating temperature range of -40C to +70C (+85C for the 100/120W products). All units provide a 5,000m altitude operational ability, and active PFC is included to maximise power quality. Additionally, a low standby power consumption figure of 0.5W is attained.

In line with previous VMS-C and VMS-C-CNF units, the new models are also compact for use in small spaces.

The range are Medical/Household certified to 60601, 61558 and 60335 safety standards, suitable for safety class I or class II installations, and especially apt for their usage in medical applications, particularly where a low leakage current of less than 0.1mA is specified.
